This paper reports a computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) investigation for a high-temperature high-pressure filtration (ceramic candle filter). However parallel flow to the filter is considered in this study. Different face (filtration) velocities are examined using the CFD code, FLUENT. Particles ranging from 1 to 100 microns are tracked through the domain to find the height at which the particles will impinge on the filter surface. Furthermore, particle distribution around the filter (or filter cake) is studied to design efficient cleaning mechanisms. Gravity affect to the particles with various inlet velocities and pressure drop are both considered.
